My friends are important to me. I cherish them and the valuable role they play in my life.
My friends reduce my stress levels. They add laughter and happiness to my life. Playing together and being silly helps me to stay strong.
My friends help me to reach my goals. They challenge me to aim high and work hard.
I spend time with my friends. I schedule standing dates for morning coffee and evenings out. I organize road trips and potluck parties. I call and text when time and distance prevent us from meeting face to face.
I build trust and reciprocity as I speak from my heart with my friends. I lower my defenses and allow myself to be vulnerable. They can count on me for validation and support. We give and take without keeping score.
My friendships make happy occasions and difficult times more meaningful. My victories are more rewarding when I celebrate them with my friends. My hardships are easier to bear when I accept their comfort and assistance.
My friendships lift me up and inspire me. My mood brightens and my creativity increases. I find the courage to take risks that would scare me if I were alone.
Today, I show my friends how much they mean to me. They make my life fuller and more joyful.
